605 N. Church Street
The Fisher-Carlson-Latham House
Blog post — New Listing: The Fisher-Carlson-Latham House in Fisher Park, $589,900

  • $548,900
  • 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, 3,755 square feet, 0.43 acre
  • Price/square foot: $146
  • Built in 1905
  • Listed September 18, 2020
  • Last sale: $370,000, July 2004
  • Note: The house is often referred to as the Carl Carlson House, but he was apparently the second owner. Arthur Fisher built the house and in 1913 sold it to Carlson.
    • County property records date the house to 1905. Fisher Park’s NRHP nomination has it as circa 1910-15. It first appears in the city directory in the 1912-13 edition with Fisher living there.
    • NRHP district nomination: “C. I. Carlson: topped by large shingled, cross-gambrell roof; multiple bays are recessed beneath the roof, behind a round-columned wraparound porch at the first story.”

210 E. Hendrix Street
contract pending October 12, 2020

  • $447,500
  • 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2,312 square feet
  • Price/square foot: $194
  • Built in 1908 (per county records; see note below)

  • Last sale: $326,000, December 2011
  • District NRHP nomination: “Gable-end roof; Oriental flair to roof of front portico and two front dormers”
    • Although county records show a 1908 date for the house, it doesn’t appear in the city directory until 1917 with physician Walter F. Byrd as the resident. He apparently was a tenant, since the house was then owned by the Rev. Charles W. and Hattie Byrd. He was the pastor of West Market Methodist Episcopal Church; they were listed as living at 412 W. Market Street. In 1918, Mrs. Byrd, by then a widow and living in Buncombe County, sold the house.
    • After two short-term owners, attorney R.R. King bought the house in 1920. He and then his descendants owned the house until 1997.

    • The first owners of the home were Clarence and Louise Johnson. He was a buyer for Meyer’s Department Store. They lost the house to foreclosure in 1929.

801 n eugene street

801 N. Eugene Street

  • $359,000
  • 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2,092 square feet
  • Price/square foot: $172
  • Built as early as 1916 or as late as 1931 (see note below)
  • Listed May 28, 2020
  • Last sale: $165,000, November 2003
  • Note: Fisher Park’s National Register nomination describes it as a “three-bay, facade-gable, gable-end I house with a bungalow-style front porch.”
    • The NRHP nomination dates the house from 1916-20, and city directories show a residence at 801 Keough, as the street was then known, dating back to 1921. County records, though, give the date as 1931. For what it’s worth, it looks more like a 1920 house than one built in 1931.

    • Only eight of the 30 units are owner-occupied, so it pretty much still is an apartment building.

    • The listing calls this a “rare chance to own a Cannon Court Condominium.” Not that rare, actually. There are usually a couple sold every year. In 2017, there were five.
